    Default Disassembled view of a Doric 2nd Gen Vac converted to a Button Filler

    A disassembled view of the Wahl-Eversharp Doric Vac (2nd generation) in "Jet Black".
    Which is also a Fraken Pen using a button, pressure bar, and blind cap from a Parker pen to convert it to a button filler.

    Other notable changes is that the section is no longer threaded but rather has been fitted with a metal base (probably to aid in creating a sac nipple). The thin band trim that would normally be by the end cap is gone, and obviously the original faceted vac knob is not present.

    To allow for some transparency a silicone sac is used.

    The way the pen was received was in need of clean up (especially inside of the barrel with ink chips stuck to the walls), and the silicone sac was attached by a fir bit of shellac (the section was also shellaced into the barrel and required some heat to undo). The personal point nib unit and section needed to be heat set.

    To wrap it up, I'll be attaching a fresh silicone sac with some silicone adhesive and rely only on friction fitting the section back into the barrel since it's snug enough without being sealed.
